1gb on a recent Android ROM will be a horrible experience, plus it's been £70 - £80 in the last few days and Vodafone store. Cold.

In £79 on Vodafone
So if you can get it unlocked for less than £20 it's cheaper there

Don't you have to buy the £10 top up?

I know it was £80 from Motorola. Where was the deal for £70?

I wish this was true, ALL UK stock is 1gb. Only the international version is 2gb - which would make for a much better experience.

why are uk versions only 1 gb and us have 2 gb

​Nougat has been designed to run perfectly on 1gb as kitkat was.

Lollipop and Marshmallow just became stupidly bloated.

We get the NFC equipped model for android pay. I have it, it's just as fast if not faster than my old phone running kitkat. That phone had a snapdragon 410, 1gb ram, NFC etc and stock android as well.

Definitely only 1GB ram I bought one yesterday and as I dont play games on a phone it is fine for me. Annoying that
the ARGOS website states 2GB so I telephoned them and pointed out the error and had them do a search for Motorola XT 1604 which is the ref for this phone and I have just been given a 20% discount, they are sending a check out.
So I am quite happy with this for £80.

​a check will not be much good. Ask them to send a cheque instead.

Got one for Christmas, it's great. Loaded it with apps, no lag whatsoever. So much cobblers talked about RAM.

OMG 1GB FAIL F**K YOU GOVE!

LOL.

Bought my girlfriend this phone for £79, she is happy with it so far.

Since when was 1GB in a phone below par. Windows phones make do with half that. iPhones until recently had 1GB.
Is android getting that inefficient it needs more. I see threads where people wet themselves over 3GB equipped phones.

The regular G4 should be £100 by now. This isn't a good price for a weak phone.

The new Moto G is due out in March as well. Will make this look look ridiculous in comparison.

Seriously guys, 1GB of RAM in an Android phone is NOT sufficient unless you only plan to use it for calls and texts.

The P9 Lite, for just a few quid more from EE, is a far more capable device and won't make your hair fall out after five minutes of use.

I couldn't agree more. I completely get this is an entry level phone and peoples needs will not be the same as someone buying a £300+ phone but 1gb will be such a dog to run even basic apps. The rest of the hardware is fine for the price range.

On the point of the P9 Lite, I can personally recommend this phone - few of my friends own it and I have had both the Honor 7 and Honor 8, both suberb phones that Huawei keep up to date. The P9 Lite is getting Android 7 in Q1 2017, there is a early build already available.

You are quite right, Windows Phone's do cope better with lower hardware demands but with their market share shrinking even further and big name apps dropping support, it is difficult to compare how Windows and Android run on day to day.

With iOS, they only have to cater for about 6 devices (if you take iOS 10 for example which dropped all phones prior to 5C) so similar to game consoles, they are able to get more out of the hardware.

No one is saying Android won't run on 1gb, we are simply saying it won't be a pleasant experience and that there are other options for slightly more where the experience would be far greater.

In other words Android isn't quite the Panacea everyone touts. All applications become bloated but Google should do better to cater for the huge market it has inspired.

A lot of it comes down to how the OS has been setup on the phone - there of course has been very light weight custom roms setup on older / entry level devices which run Marshmallow and Nugaut no problems at all but like any OS (Apple included) once the user starts to add to it, it will slow down slightly... however with 1gb, will slow down quickly. You need to remember the same ROM give or take is being used on the international version of this phone which has 2gb ram.

Common apps such as Facebook and Messenger which would no doubt be used on this phone use over 0.5gb when running, doesn't leave much left for the OS and other apps does it.

Without any evidence to support your claims your words are just opinion not fact.

Got one of these for my son - works well. Very smooth despite only having 1Gb RAM.

The full version Of Microsoft Windows 10 can easily work on 1GB RAM I'm surprised a Linux based OS is less efficient.

The G4 isn't a weak phone. Too many **** this phone off because of the bootloop problem. Yes I know that it could effect any G4 but considering how many were sold the bootloop only effects early versions and later build dates on a small percentage. No way would it sell at £100.

​I didn't say the G4 was a weak phone. Jesus Christ. There's a lot of people who can't read in this thread. I'll try again.

The G4 Play is a weak phone and the regular G4 should have had a major price drop by now, if the next model is coming out in 3 months.

Im going to wait for the Moto g5, its out in March guys and they normally have loads of early deals.
